Help us raise money to defeat blood cancer!

It is my pleasure to serve once again as the
2024 National Light The Night Honorary Chair!

Join me as I  walk with fans, friends and families across the country in this year's
Light The Night Walk from Nashville on October 17th, 2024!

The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Thousands of participants raise funds for vital research and patient services and on these special nights they carry illuminated lanterns in support of those who have survived, those battling and those who have lost their fight with cancer.

Thanks to your generous support, we have raised over $2 million dollars in the past ten years to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) accelerate cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. A giant THANK YOU to ABC and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” for the opportunity to share my family's story and help other families in the ongoing fight against blood cancers. In 2013 I had the privilege to appear on the show and won $500,000 for LLS!

As a result of your involvement, hundreds of thousands of people diagnosed with blood cancer are today living normal, productive lives. We are on the threshold of amazing breakthroughs. Your money accelerates miraculous new treatments and healing therapies once thought impossible. My daughter Addie is herself a leukemia survivor. She has been healthy and cancer-free for over nineteen beautiful years and is why I am honored to represent The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and help raise more funds for the life-saving research and patient family services LLS provides.

  Together we can make a difference and help those patients and their families who are on the front lines of the battle against cancer. Here’s how you can help:

  • Join one of our Charles Esten’s Team Addie teams or start a Team Addie in your area!
  • Make a tax-deductible donation to a team member
